    the amp you want , will depend on a few things , 1st your cars electrical , 2 nd your budget .might wanna look for an amp that does 1500- 2000 rms at 1 ohm , which is what you'll want to wire the subs at ,also a little overhead on the amp will be better ,thats why 1500-2000 rms , you can dial the gain back for the power you need and not run the amp hard

    Re: Need Amp Help

    coil impedence on the subs? dual 2? I would go with a .5 ohm amp stable amp. Setups like them subs are tricky. .5 you need a good amp or a 2 channel 1ohm stable amp which I know of none. And the reason I say this, Is cause if I had a DVC I would use both coils. That's just me. I want all the coil to be used. And I would overdrive it alittle and turn the gain down so you have no clipping. Clipping will smoke a sub quicker than anything.

    Re: Need Amp Help

    If you have d2 subs you're going to need to make your power at 2 or. 5 ohms. I would ask myslows10 which amp he has in stock that will do well on those. He'll do you right

    thanks gary , op i do have amps in stock that will work for your needs , the planet audio amp will work if your subs are d4 subs.but its not a very good amp ,cheap quality ,power hungry ,and it prolly wont do the power they say ,at least not cleanly .anyway i need a budget .

    He's got a dual 2. So if he drops them to 1 each its gonna be a .5 parallel. And they are not very power hungry. I failed to see the d2 in the model. I never knew they made dual 2Ω with that low of power rms handleing
